Supreme Court Will Not Stop at Overturning Roe. It's Time to Expand the Supreme Court and Protect Our Rights

May 3, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Guns Down America Executive Director Igor Volsky released the following statement in response to news reports that a majority of Supreme Court justices have drafted an opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade.

“When justices like Brett Kavanaugh pledge, under oath, that cases like Roe are settled precedent during their confirmation hearings, but then vote to overturn it, we see what a sham the entire Supreme Court is. This draft decision is a direct attack on the rights of millions of women, and we all know – because justices have already lied about respecting Roe as precedent – that they will not stop at Roe. All of our rights are at risk, including laws designed to protect us from gun violence. All options should be on the table for cleaning up the Supreme Court, including expanding the number of justices.”
